Joint Source Control Strategy

In December 2005, DEQ and EPA released the Portland Harbor Joint Source Control Strategy, representing consensus between DEQ, EPA, and our federal, state and tribal project partners on how to identify, evaluate and prioritize upland sources of contamination that are affecting or may affect the Willamette River in the Portland Harbor area. Screening objectives and prioritization methods in the JSCS are consistent with EPA's schedule and goals for cleaning up the river and its sediments.

DEQ reports the progress of upland source control work through periodic Milestone Reports to EPA. Reports are available below.
